see that the trend has been popularized not only on these channels but on other and social media channels as well. looking at these videos you can see how it might be distressing to imagine teachers with some kind of suppressed anger acting out in this way but parents we talked to said it was nothing like this and the whole thing has been overblown. >> i think that some people are being a little too sensitive to the thing, that the fact of the matter is that our kids come down here to an amazing principal, to an amazing staff who care and love for them every day and no one's ever been worried to send their kids here. >> reporter: now, principal barbara liess admitted perhaps she didn't really think through the idea as well as she should have saying in a letter to parents "this was a lapse in judgment and i recognize the concerns this may have raised. our staff is committed to modeling for students a productive and appropriate ways of handling stress recognizing that she says while well intended this scenario is counter to

7:09 am
quantico a southbound crash on 95. this is going against the typical morning rush so an atypical slow down. arrow truck and police sirens. two left lanes blocked. right lane is crawling by. you're backed up from 234 in dumfries to this point in quantico. factor in about 30 extra minutes to your commute. route one southbound is pretty opened other than usual morning volume. skyfox in laurel, beautiful view of the trees but unfortunately 197 is shut down in both directions. it's hard to make out the utility workers and trucks because of the beautiful trees there but the road is completely shut down between powder mill road and baltimore-washington parkway. you need to detour around that. let's go ahead and switch it over for a look at our maps. also keep in mind look at baltimore-washington parkway right now. both north and southbound sides completely jammed up between the beltway and 32. southbound side even heavier. coming to and from the capital beltway to the baltimore beltway i would say route one or 95 better bets so you don't get stuck in that massive slow down this morning. the outer loop there's a new crash a
7:10 am
blocking the left lane. that's in the backup already, about a 20 minute slowdown 95 over to georgia avenue and another inner loop crash that we're dealing with out by 95. 270 southbound jams into clarksburg. back to you guys. >> erin thanks. let's talk more about the commute this morning as we track metro. more issues could be in store for riders today. yesterday was problems on the red line today could be lack of workers. >> fox5's annie yu is live from metro center with the latest now. good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning, steve and allison. well, you know, the good news is so far riders tell us it's been so far so good. there's no indication that a sickout is happening but of course, that could all change. it's still very early in the day. but you know, talks of a possible sickout have been going on all week and i want to show you some video from a board meeting yesterday that we shot where things did get pretty ugly between the union as well as metro. many of the metro workers showed up to protest and they're upset about the changes in policies and this hard line approach by management so dozens of
7:11 am
workers did stage a protest there. they dropped protest petitions right in front of metro's gm paul wiedefeld as they turned their backs, they chanted the words, who moves this city? we move this city. they joined hands to form a human chain outside of metro headquarters and they're challenging this absenteeism policy which is the route of this possible sickout. this rule requires workers to file absence requests three days in advance for things like calling out sick doctors appointments to get them excused. metro says this revised policy cracks down on excessive absenteeism. met says they've been bracing for this possible sickout after they received nearly 500 sickout requests for friday today. all of those requests were denied. metro says they expect to offer full rail and bus service today. the union has repeatedly denied that a sickout is planned. now, wiedefeld says he's not taking any chances. he's asked supervisors tom pitch in wherever they can to keep things
7:12 am
today t meantime this tension between metro and its workers union continues because we do know later on this morning the union has scheduled a -- a news conference to call for change in this policy so this is sort of await and see situation guys as the day progresses and of course this, you know, relationship between metro and the workers union continues. that's the very latest here from metro center. back to you in the studio. >> annie thanks. 7:12. let's get to the ice. verizon center last night caps kicked off round two of the post season with the penguins. second quarter was the forgettable one, gist 12 seconds in pittsburgh scored. 52 seconds later they would score again. caps come back to tie at two but then a third period score by nick bonino sealed the deal. caps loss add home. redskins luck working out quite well. they got in guy at 17. team drafted
7:13 am
was not expected to be still on the board at that point. allen told the post mike jones i just want to prove the redskins right for picking me. nice to have the local guy here. he grew uprooting for the skins so -- >> i love that. >> welcome back homely. >> definitely invested. >> yup. >> texas teacher in trouble after staging a mock assassination of the president. inside of her classroom. details of that coming up. >> and arkansas carries out its fourth death sentence in just eight days but witnesses say something went wrong. we'll talk about it when we come back. >> ♪ >> ♪♪

[laughter] >> right. >> 67 in wash. >> washington. >> low to mid 80's later today with even a little humidity. i think you'll notice the humidity. i noticed it yesterday. you'll feel it creeping up over the next several days. near 90 by saturday. all right. i have a map that doesn't want to move. weak front last night. i didn't get a shower. maybe a few of us d it's
7:17 am
pushing off the shore there. you can see it out towards ocean city. that's really the only weather feature of note here. otherwise high pressure builds in. we'll be in for a beautiful friday afternoon temperatures in the low 80's. drive later today if you're going out tonight dry conditions. it will be warm tonight going to the baseball game going to the nats game tonight temperatures in the 70's at game time and here's your weekend forecast. it will be mid 80's today. and your saturday sunday forecast hot and humid tomorrow 91. sunday could be a pop-up storm temperatures in the 80's. >> oh, boy, really? pop-up storm new. >> it's beep been there are fora couple days. >> big plans for sunday. >> you don't need a pop-up storm then. hi erin good morning. >> good morning. 7:17. we have a few problem areas on the map. we'll start you off with a live look right now. this is a crash seen in the process of clearing but it looks like the left lane is still blocked with that arrow truck 95 southbound at 619. heading from dumfries into quantico you'll hit that delay about a
7:18 am
route one southbound dealing with typical morning rush f95 southbound atypical slowdowns. northbound side not interpret ribble but you will hit some stop-and-go traffic across the occoquan. we'll switch to skyfox. tracking a problem in laurel all morning. utility work here's a nice close view of it. there was a downed pole and some downed wires laurel bowie road between powder mill road and bw parkway. detour around. that it's been closed for sometime now. as we look at our maps bw parkway northbound and southbound this is the worst area of the commute right now between 32 and the beltway both directions with really heavy delays surrounding powder mill road. 95 northbound and southbound better bet to and from the baltimore beltway. outer loop crash left lane blocked at new hampshire. caution there. backing up from route one over to georgia with about a 20 minute slow down. a crash on the inner loop right by bw parkway so give yourself some extra time there. 270 southbound jammed up just a bit from that 70 to clarksburg. you open up and then south of father hurley more delays so about a 35 minute slowdown from 70 down to the spur right
7:19 am
66 eastbound typical slowdowns especially from 234 to 28. right now it's about a 30 minute delay as you head to the beltway. metro is on time except for safe track. back to you guys. >> a check of our top stories now it is 7:19. the state of arkansas facing some criticism over its latest execution. overnight 38-year-old kenneth williams died by lethal injection. witnesses say he was convulsing shortly after he was given the injection. he died 13 minutes after that injection was given. >> his attorneys are calling his execution "horrifying." williams was convicted in the deaths of two people in the late 1990's. arkansas set to carry out four more executions over the next three days before one of its lethal injection drugs expires at the end of next month. >> an ohio man accused of kidnapping his neighbor and keeping her in a hole behind his home is being held on $1 million bond. police say they found the woman after responding to reports of cries coming from dennis stone's backyard. police found that 30-year-old woman inside a three and a

7:31 am
republican congressman andy harris and democratic anthony brown both of maryland. gentlemen, good morning to both of you. i know we want to talk about your best, your worst of the first 100 days of president trump's administration so far. i want to ask you first of all, this was interesting that came out yesterday the president talking with reuters and saying essentially this job is a lot harder than i thought it was and i miss those aspects and freedoms of my former life. what is your take on that, and congressman, harris i'll start with you? >> look i'm pretty sure everyone who becomes president of the united states feels the same way. you know it's one thing to see it from the outside. another one to be on the inside. but the president is doing a great job and, obviously gotten used to the job. >> any job takes awhile to get used tom congressman brown, let me take things over to you and get your take on that comment about the first 100 days and the president's thoughts on it. >> look, when candidates are on the campaign trail for 18 months, they should get a sense if they don't already have it that this is tough work. governing is tough it's not like, you
7:32 am
estate deal, but it's balancing a lot of competing interests, and i think the failures we've seen in this administration over the first 100 days reflects the president's lack of understanding of what this work is all about. it's very disappointing. >> all right. right off the top, differing opinions as we might expect from the two of you. let's get into specifics now. congressman harris, i'll start with you. what do you think is the top accomplishment of the president's first 100 days? >> i think it's delivering on the promises he made on the campaign trail. whether it's the appointment of neil gorsuch to the supreme court, illegal immigration down 72% last month at the border, whether it's making america great again in the eyes of the world. i think it's delivering on his campaign promises. >> all right. delivering on campaign promises. congressman brown for you the number one accomplishment would be what? >> first of all i'll give you the president d minus for first 99 days the only real accomplishment that i would acknowledge was his nomination and
7:33 am
of secretary mattis at the department of defense. he's smart, he's studied, and he's been a real cautioning and calming voice i think at the department of defense within the president. he's reminded the president that the united states should not engage in torture. he's had to go to iraq and reassure our allies we're not there for oil as the president suggests but there to provide stability and he had to go to europe to reassure our european allies we're going to support nato and we're going to be there for europe notwithstanding what the president has been saying or was saying during the campaign trail. so i give him a high mark for general mattis over all d minus. >> the high mark to general mattis. let's go back to you, congressman harris. in your opinion, what's been the top set back so far? >> i think when the president gave his inaugural address he talked about wanting to unite america, wandering to -- all sides to work together. he specifically made that point. and i think it's just ki
7:34 am
shame that the president hasn't had the democrats have not reached across the aisle to work on delivering the agenda that again the president won the election on. i think that's probably a big disappointment for him. >> all right. congressman brown, same question to you. what do you feel is the top set back? you touched on few things earlier in your previous statement. what do you feel would be at the top of that list? >> yeah, it's a long list, and the president unwillingness to reach across the aisle. he doesn't have a plan to reach across with. he doesn't have a plan for health care for everybody which he promised. the president promised an infrastructure plan. we haven't seen that. which would create jobs i think both democrats and republicans are looking for an train structure plan and the president promised he'd have strategy to combat isis, and, you know, one bomb in afghanistan doesn't make to for a strategy. so dem democrats are willing tok to make government work and to work witness administration, but when there are no plans and no details, it doesn't give you much to work with. >> i
7:35 am
same question. congressman harris back to you and give you first crack at this one. the two of you are obviously in agreement there has not been reach across from one side of the aisle to the other here and work together. what does it take to get to that point knowing what we've learned in this 100 days and there has been, l have been stand offs on both sides in trying to do this. but we have big issue. we have health care. we have taxes. we have the border wall campaign promises from president trump. what will it take for both sides to work together? a specific issue or something else? >> well, look, i think that, again, the president in his inaugural address reach across the aisle. one person has to make the first move. the president did make the first move. in response he gets threats of shutting down the government from the democrat majority in the senate. if they don't do, f the president doesn't do everything that the democrats want. that's not working together. that's not compromise. it's going to have to take someone reaching out to the president. the president has reach out to the
7:36 am
i think that, you know, the effort has to be made. it hasn't been made yet. i think maybe on the infrastructure bill it will be although i suspect they'll be impass on that as well and, again, on the border wall, for instance, look majority of americans believe we should protect our southern border and yet this has become a flash point in the current negotiation. i think this is going to extend into the negotiation in october. because honestly i'm not sure we need a wall in some places but, again, the democrats have just totally opposed the president on this. i think irrationally opposed the president on this against the will of the american people. but i'm afraid that the flash points like that are going to continue until, again, both sides of the aisle reach across to each other and work together. >> congressman brown, your take on that that reciprocal effort who blinks first? >> look, the president should be demonstrating leadership but also there's a failure in the congress in terms of the republican leadership. steve, there have been so many bills that have come to the floor
7:37 am
that have rolled back protections for the environment, for consumers, health care, financial protections, work force protections yet there have been virtual follow hearings in committees, very few committee markups all of this is being done in the back room closed doors. so this rhetoric this notion about reaching across the aisle it starts by opening up the process and getting back to regular order. i think you see in an administration in today particularly a greater interest in scoring points on 100 day report card than actually making progress for the american pe people. this idea that there would be this cram down of a health care bill that would eliminate guaranteed issue and would -- and the protections we have for pre-existing conditions it would increase the costs for seniors. it would eliminate the search benefits these are examples of a did administration and leadership in congress republican leadership that's more interested in scoring points than opening up
7:38 am
